I have 10 years of teaching experience. I have taught every math subject from 7th Grade math to Calculus, but my passion is Algebra 1. I have a very strong background in Intervention. I have also been a Math Teacher Mentor through my local Education Service Center for 4 years.
Project Based Learning is a big part of my class. I think it is crucial for students to know where they will use math in the real world and the projects I design give them that opportunity. Their main project for the year is their Interactive Notebook. They create their own textbook each year giving them the opportunity to take ownership in their leaning and giving me the opportunity to assess that learning along the way!
Teaching is often its own reward! But, I have been recognized by The Texas State Senate for "Exemplary Service and Significant Contributions to Math Teaching and Learning in Texas Schools." Fancy right? AND by my local radio station...my students nominated me for teacher of the month! It was really very sweet.
I received my Bachelors from Texas A&M-Commerce with a double major in Math and Physics and a minor in Chemistry. After working in the "real-world", I returned to Texas A&M-Texarkana to pursue my Masters in Education.
